I’m a Mi’kmaq /Irish /Acadian down-Easter living in the Toronto area.

I’ve been learning Mi’kmaq very, very slowly. But with my jewelry, I’m learning a Mi’kmaq word for every piece I make. About half of us speak the language, fluently. There’s a great movement trying to save the language before our Elders leave us.

So, this is my project. I love working in the arts – all of them. I love my dogs, my home in the country and my partner. I love singing, acting, writing and composing. It’s a good life. I’m enjoying it. And that’s reflected in my work.

  1. Thank you so much for this! When I have some Powwow information, I’ll be sure to post it here. This is a fantastic idea for vendors, because vendors go through so much to get their works out there, to support the Powwows. Sometimes they sell nothing, they survive through storms (I’ve seen two of them this summer, and did okay, but pity the poor folks who lost their merchandise and tents to wind and rain!) I’m pretty new at this, so I really appreciate the support you’re giving me. Wela’lin!

    • Cathy, we’re honoured to show your art. Once we get a few more people, we’ll get the Powwow listing going!
      We’re going to help everybody survive!
      Remember to share your posts!
      Pass the word, Pass the Feather.
